An empty feeling inside

We have been invited to a farewell party, so the boys haven’t had lunch yet.  We are at Toys R Us, shopping for a gift for the host family’s children.  B is noticeably quiet and morose.

Dad — Are you alright, B?

B — Yeah.

Dad — What’s wrong?

B — My tummy hurts.

Mom — What does it feel like?

B — It feels like it doesn’t have any food.   And my body feels like it doesn’t have any moisture.
